about:

For my piece at sea (2007) I filmed myself in front of Chris Welsby ' s video installation At sea (2003) while on display in Lethaby Gallery in London.
The printed text is to be placed away from the projection, in the exhibition space, for the audience to remain oblivious of the details of my action while watching the video. Consequently the reading of the text brings a sense of déjà vu and at the same time a surprise and a different interpretation of the experience of the video work.
